As the blizzard approaches, New Haven police remind residents of parking restrictions and snow removal requirements.
The parking ban takes effect at 6 p.m. Monday and will end at 2 p.m. Thursday.
Parking will be barred on all snow routes during snow emergencies like this and otherwise parking is only allowed on sides of the street with even addresses. On-street barking is banned downtown and residents are required to park on even-numbered sides of the street in neighborhoods.
Property owners will be responsible for clearing snow and ice from sidewalks or footpaths pedestrians can access.
The town forbids people from moving snow or ice onto the street from private properties, sidewalks or gutters, police said. Violators face a $250 fine per violation.
Residents can park for free at all public school lots, as well as at the Granite Square Garage on State Street starting at 5 p.m. Parking is also available at the Temple Street Garage for $3 per car starting at 5 p.m. Monday.
